Most of the newly uploaded shows I've looked at seem to already have been available, but quite a few of them have been redone by Charlie Miller. Judging by the other shows he's done that I've listened to, I would consider them to be an upgrade.
I haven't listened to any of the new 80's shows yet, so I really can't tell you for sure.
I've had a lot of 72-74 and Jerry discs kindly dropped in my lap lately and they've been taking up my listening time.

I did spend about a day downloading this show.

The files are huge and it took a long time. When I converted them to playable files, it wouldn't play them. I couldn't burn them either, and it kept shutting down my Real player and my Windows player. It was odd, I don't know if it's the files or what.

AJ ... those files that you downloaded are 24 bit and are meant for burning to DVD audio; you can play them on your computer as .wav files if you have a soundcard that can play 24 bit, but if you want to burn to CD or convert to .mp3 for a portable player such as an ipod, probably best that you download the files from this link:

Well that explains a lot. After I wasn't able to burn those files I downloaded the other source.

So if they ever get the files up for this show, it would be the same 24 bit thing?

So far there is no other copy of this available.

Edit: Actually this a SBD show so there will never be any files to download. Damn.

Thanks guys...figured as much. Was just curious, and appreciate you getting back to me on it, Arb.

Of course, what I am hoping for is that one day someone supplies Charlie Miller with a dozen heretofore uncirculating shows from 68!
